National Leader of the main opposition party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of plotting to kill him, saying that Nigerians and the world should hold the President responsible should anything happen to him.
Tinubu who raised the alarm while reacting to the deployment of soldiers to keep vigil at his Bourdillon road Ikoyi residence said the soldiers were deployed to target him.
the ‘Unknown Soldier’ is too recent in our memory,” his media office said in a statement.
“This morning, Tuesday, two vans from the army were stationed on both sides of the house along Bourdillon road, their missions shrouded in secrecy. They stationed about 500 metres away from Tinubu’s gate. Later, they moved close to his gate as if they wanted to enter the premises. The stern-looking soldiers were around for hours on Sunday and returned on Monday to continue their surveillance.”
The former Lagos governor said he would not be intimidated by “this show of strength, intimidation and possible harassment”, adding “I remain resolute in my advocacy and support for the rule of law.”
“Jonathan’s government has through the service chiefs staged a coup against Nigerians and the constitution and now wants to silence his critics. I will not be muzzled through the barrel of the gun. The guns and bullets they should use to defeat Boko Haram are now being turned against the opposition and innocent Nigerians”, he stressed.
